La La Anthony isn’t bothered by haters who claim she can’t act.

The Power actress stopped by The Breakfast Club earlier this week after her memorable (Spoilers ahead!) scene on the hit Starz series, where she told the show’s hosts that working on the show proves she has what it takes.

“My thing is that I’m doing it. So, if I couldn’t do it, then why am I doing it? If you can do it better then why you not getting the jobs I’m getting? That’s how I look at it,” she said.

“I put my all into it. I didn’t start that way so it’s been a different journey for me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do it,” she continued. “People just naturally want to hate because you started differently. ‘You’re not a real actor, you started on the radio.’ Alright, maybe I didn’t come into it like you, but I put the work in and I continue to put the work in so that doesn’t bother me.”

Anthony’s time on Power as LaKeisha Grant came to an end last Sunday.
